    Pfffffttt......meneer had zijn pakket al 6 dagen in huis en kwam er na 6 dagen pas achter dat het beeld defect was??? Ik kreeg foto's die totaal niet klopte met het verpakkingsmateriaal. Het eerste wat hij deed was mij beledigen, sorry maar contact met deze persoon is onmogelijk!! Mijn eerste negatieve feedback, maar dat zal mij een zorg zijn, ik had hem gezegd dat hij het met Catawiki maar moest regelen omdat ik me niet zo door iemand laat behandelen, nu krijg ik een dreig bericht van hem??

    Huh……waarom heeft U geen contact met mij opgenomen? U heeft het 13 dagen geleden ontvangen en nu pas lees ik dit?? Makkelijk om een neutrale feedback te geven zonder eerst contact met de verkoper op te nemen, die nergens van weet, en het ook nog goed heeft verpakt??
